Kane and I have a situation regarding one of our children, and for now, things are in limbo.
A decision will be rendered not too long from now (this week, in fact) regarding our daughter and her future placement. I can't go into much detail, for obvious reasons, but suffice it to say it's been a very stressful time this past year, especially the past month.
This daughter struggles with mental illness, stemming back to the time she lived with her biological mother before coming to live with me and my family and eventually being adopted.
Her illness has worsened over time (she is in her teens), and she is not safe to be at home. She needs to be in a therapeutic treatment facility. The problem is our mental health system is in a terrible state of disrepair, and getting the help for our daughter that she needs has been extremely difficult. Kane and I are dealing with a system that is fighting us on this issue.
There was a segment that aired on 60 Minutes two weeks ago that highlighted this problem. If you have a few minutes, this will shed some light on what we've been going through. If you don't have time now, the link, for future reference, is
Anyway, that's where it's at for us right now. Life seems as if it's on hold. Kane and I are doing well, I'm glad to say........I don't know what I'd do without him.
